September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day annually, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. (orangeshirtday.org)
The Horizon School Division Indigenous Steering Committee would like all schools to participate in the Orange Shirt Day logo-drawing contest within our division, with a focus not only on creating a meaningful logo, but also on a written paragraph explaining what the logo means to the artist who created it.
The contest will run from May 3, 2021 through May 17, 2021. Please ensure that all submissions are sent to Lisa Sowinski by noon on May 17. (firstname.lastname@example.org) We look forward to seeing all the submissions and are excited to see the chosen logo on our Horizon Orange Shirt Day shirts!
